    PO SOON: J Mascis - New solo album

    I go there every year, do you know which bar he was doing that in? Edit: Nevermind, I just looked it up myself.

    PO SOON: J Mascis - New solo album

    They were all really nice. My story is a strange one though. It was right after beyond came out so one of those tours shortly after the release and it was sponsored by camel cigarettes (does anybody else remember this? I’ve never seen anything like it). After the show me and my friends were waiting around inside the venue finishing our drinks and some weird exec type women came up to us and asked if we were fans (duh, why else would we be there). She asked us if we wanted to meet them and brought us to some backstage area. They came out, signed some stuff and briefly chatted. J was very shy, I don’t blame him, he probably didn’t want to be there but it was a cool experience nonetheless. Anyway, that’s my story.

    This man can do no wrong. I also got to meet him (and the rest of dino jr) once and what you see is what you get.

    PO Now: Cloud Nothings - Last Building Burning

    I just got into these guys within the last year or so and love everything I've heard. Looking forward to this next one. Thanks for the heads up.

    Glad it’s not just me. Thanks for the input.

    Lucero “among the ghosts”

    I really like this album so far but does anyone think the mix is super low? Maybe it's just my copy, curious to see if anyone else has the same issue.
  7. I'm still holding off on this but really hoping I don't miss out. Hard to justify that amount for shipping.
  8. I really want that boxed set but I wish I didn’t have 2/3 of the EPS already.

    The Official 'Vinyl Me, Please' thread.

    I cancelled my membership as well. This month is rough, perfect time for my membership to lapse.

    The Official 'Vinyl Me, Please' thread.

    Hardcore/punk/metal/etc is severely underserved, bordering on non-existent. If those are the only genres you enjoy then you're not going to get any value out of the club. I feel like the only thing I've even seen them offer along those lines as far as exclusives go is the new Deafheaven record. That being said, I have found it very useful for discovering new music so if you're open to other stuff it might be worth checking out. Currently they have three "tracks" to choose from every month. Essentials (which is mostly indie stuff from the 2000s to now), Hip Hop and Classics (soul, jazz, stuff along those lines). Dig around on their webstore and discogs and you can see all of their releases.
  11. I believe they ended up playing four from the new one. They only played maybe eight songs in total but I thought they sounded phenomenal and absolutely sold me on the new one which I was probably going to get anyway just hadn't pulled the trigger yet.
  12. Went to see these guys tonight and they were excellent. I haven’t given the new album a listen yet but it’s certainly going to be my next purchase.
  13. Parachutes, front to back, is excellent, the other two less so but I enjoy songs off of each. I don't know, they have a bit of a negative connotation and they really fell off later in their careers. Something being a guilty pleasure doesn't make it bad, I just probably wouldn't admit to most people that I enjoy Coldplay. Probably my own hang up more than anything else.
  14. Their first three albums are definitely guilty pleasures for me. Definitely going to grab this. BTW for anyone still looking for parachutes, you'd be surprised at what stock some B&N's have so I would shop around, you might get lucky.
  15. I was just about to say, this website looks like it was pulled straight from 1997.
